Every time we visit Palm Springs we look forward to visiting VillageFest. Its a great evening out, strolling along taking in the sights, outstanding scenery, enjoying the warm weather, and the lovely friendliness of Palm Springs folk, not to mention a cold beer from one of the many bars to choose from.

It's fun to walk along and shop locally made crafts and food. A good nite out. And fun to bring guests to get the village feel.

Local or Traveler, a regular must-go... always a great gift find, something new, music, fresh farmer's market, food. A true open-air street market every Thursday 5-10pm, downtown Palm Canyon Drive is closed off (and traffic/parking diverted).

Another must do in Palm Springs. Every Thursday, all year, Palm Canyon drive is closed off for Villagefest. Lots of kiosks featuring food and crafts. Well worth going

This is where the denizens of Palm Springs and tourists come in droves. People of all walks of life congregate and stroll along Palm Canyon Drive to eat, shop, and enjoy the warm night air.

A street fair of exceptional flavor and value. Great music, food, entertainment, vendors and just plain great folks bring Palm Springs to life. Every Thursday evening, head downtown to get revitalized with energy and a good vibe. You can't miss.
